Better of replacing the card since it is way out dated and outgunned with the new stuff. Even a middle of the road new card would eat that one for breakfast....and still be hungry.

If you're insistant on replacing the blown part take the numbers you posted to a local electronics shop and they should be able to get the replacement part. Likely though there are other damaged parts as well that just are not physically apparent so take some time to test the varying parts before you waste your money or your time replacing one thing only to find the next one is bad...and the next one...and the next one......
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

You are looking for an electrolytic capacitor probably (it looks like a can). Somewhere on the blown cap will be a number followed by uF, and this number will probably be a 47 something such as 0.47uf or 470uf.

You need the exact same capacitance and the same or higher voltage rating. Beyond that I hope your de-soldering and soldering skills aren't too worn out because they pack them in tight.

You'll need to know the microfarads of the cap as bigalexe explained (almost always printed on the side of the cap), It's very do-able as I have replaced capacitors in video and mother boards myself. it takes some skill, a good solder remover and solder iron. You can go here to find the info you need to replace the cap and they also have a catalog you can order your caps from too

Purchase a 470uF 16V capacitor with a 105C operating temperature rating. As others have said, it may not be the only faulty component, but it won't be an expensive try. Remember that electrolytic capacitors have polarity, the new one must be soldered back with + and - same as the old one was.

The 470 uF may also look like 470 ...they both mean the same thing

True - I usually don't bother going for the mu when typing, but it would be more accurate. :thumbsup:

Substituting a known good PSU is the definitive test. A PSU can be tested for obvious faulty operation with a PSU tester or a digital voltmeter, or an internal inspection may also reveal visibly bad capacitors.

Having swapped an ATI card for nVidia, did you un-install the ATI drivers, Control Centre etc before fitting the GeForce & installing its drivers etc?

No, that suggests your motherboard support chipset is ATI. What is the model of the computer system or motherboard?

If you don't know any model information, System Information for Windows (SIW) should be able to discover it for you:
